Title: Empathy is a Must for Machine Learning, February Community Call
Abstract: Artificial Intelligence, Machine learning and Predictive Analytics are at a perfect storm and many companies leverage these technologies to transform their organization. These technologies existed for a decade, but they evolved rapidly – machine learning today is not like machine learning of the past. In these session, we will look into these technologies, understand what SAP is to offer and how SAP customers are using these technologies.

Apps are for the business users
API’s are for the developers
Training infrastructure is for data scientist
Q: Are there differences in training the empathic model versus normal statistical mode
A: Key element is data availability and images
Q: Taking open platforms into the context, how does sap ml pair with the data lakes and all platforms out there beyond vora?
A: Going natively on SAP Cloud Platform; will be natively connected on SAP Cloud Platform
Create machine learning platform partner program; increased openness
Q: Where is data held, privacy/data concerns..
A: data protection is serious; follow German privacy laws, which are strict; linked to SAP Cloud Platform roadmap
Q: How guard against biases? Creating new ones?
A: Discussing with SuccessFactors colleagues and Business Beyond Bias campaigns and machine learning can contribute
Try to find calibrated data
Q: Are these models pretrained?
Or does the customer have to do their own training?
A: Some things are pre-trained, others are not
Q: Relationship between Clea and Leonardo?
A: Clea will help all SAP apps, including IoT
